Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that Manchester United players must be patient when diving into tackles against Barcelona ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League clash.
“The mood before the PSG home game was a little bit different but we’ve learnt from that PSG game, the players have talked about it – how we got dragged into making fouls. You’ve got to be more patient in tackles, some of these players will have some tricks up their sleeves. They have some streetwise players,” said Solskjaer.
Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Nemanja Matic, Ander Herrera, and Antonio Valencia are all one yellow card booking away from suspension.
Solskjaer added that he expects Paul Pogba to be at United next season amid rumors of a move to Real Madrid.
“Paul is looking forward to tomorrow, he’s a Man United player, one of our big performers on the big stage, his game against PSG was not his greatest moment but he’s only focused on playing tomorrow and I cannot not see him playing for Man United next season.”
